Tattooed Jesus Uproars Local Texas Community
[ Life]

All kinds of billboards upset all kinds of people–that’s just the blessing and curse of advertising; however, there are some billboards out there that publicize their message over the line, or do they? A small community in Texas believes so, where an image of Jesus covered in tattoos has been placed in public view.

According to ABC News, a billboard of Jesus with his torso covered in tattoos has appeared along a West Lubbock, Texas, highway advertising the website JesusTattoo.org. This website, according to its about page, is owned by “a small group of people humbled by the love of Jesus. We are not a church. We are not selling anything. We encourage you to tell as many people as possible. That’s it.”

The terms stated on the tattooed Jesus’ torso include: “Outcast,” “Addicted,” and “Jealous.”

With West Lubbock, Texas, residing in the “Bible Belt” community, the billboard has sparked quite a lot of controversy with local religious and non-religious residents. The billboard has also received a lot of support as well, so the views of the town on the billboard’s content are mixed.

Some of the reactions from local residents of West Lubbock, Texas, are provided below:

“I don’t like the picture. I think it’s very derogatory.”

“I’m thinking more like it’s something that’s blasphemous, negative.”

“But you know, it’s a testament of our sin and nobody’s perfect.”

“I just think that if you want to express how you feel about God or anything, you can put that on your body.”

    The fact these christians associate tattoos with being a degenerate “outcast” and a drug addict is more offensive to me that Jesus having some tattoos. Christians drop the ball yet again…
